“I learn by making connections – between new content and what I already know, and between academic disciplines. My college transcript (which includes courses in Global Contemporary Art, Buddhism, Astrophysics, and Children’s Literature) may seem random to the casual observer, but the variety of topics and approaches I was introduced to helped me to discover unexpected connections and to make my own meaning as a learner.”
